The weather forecast is saying we have a few more cold nights but my garden is showing some signs of spring. Dwarf irises are super special to me. I was thrilled when I found these in a garden store last year… I had some planted in a garden at home ( UK) in memory of a lost child. I felt a sense of completion when I was able to plant some here…..the sun is shining today and before the crocus have risen, before the daffodils have made their announcement, through the mulch I noticed these little beauties in all their glory. I wanted to share them with you.
So here we are April already. April is normally a very busy month in the vegetable grower’s garden and this one will not be much different. March here broke all weather records with long warm, dry days and unusually warm nights. Because of that I think I am possibly as much as two weeks ahead of where I was this time last year.
With the main hunting season now finished in UK and the Trout fishing season yet to start my thoughts turn to my garden at this time of year. Not pretty flowers or roses but vegetables that will supplement the family diet through the coming year.
